    2 SOFTWARE UPGRADE - Status update

    Well kids, the hardware updates are in place, the search index successfully rebuilt (finally), and things have stabilized. We now have 1.3 terabytes of SSD space at our disposal.

    Today, I leased a new domain, ďtb2k-legacy.comĒ. Once we make the changeover to the new software, this version will be accessible through the above URL. Access will be READ ONLY however.

    I will be reviewing the support software required for the XenForo software, as well as the conversion bids I received back in June. Iíll let the contract to someone, and hook them up with our admin. I donít have an ETA yet, but Iíll keep you all in the loop.

  2. Thanks, Dennis. I have no idea what you said, but it sounds like things are going well. (I still think that TV is magic. lol)

    Look, I really don’t do anything except plan and facilitate. I sometimes work to recover, um, “unexpected issues” (lol). But I don’t do daily admin on the server these days.

    So when this is all done we will have everything we have now, under new software that essentially does what we have now but better. We will also have a website that is a read-only snapshot of TB2K as of that moment, a Groundhog Day version, if you will, that operates with the existing vbulletin software in its current configuration for searching and reading only, is that about right?

    So... will the new version be a "blank slate" (hope I'm misreading this!) Or will everything copy over to the updated software?

    Bump for the night shift. I’ve forwarded all the necessary prelim info to our Admin. As soon as he has the requisite software installed, I’ll hire a person to port us over.

    Pretty sure it will have everything, all posts, threads, PMs, you name it. That’s the whole point to making software that is compatible with an existing brand. Sales would be weak if you had to start over when you bought new software.
